After its original introduction in medicine as urological lithotripsy, the shockwave technology has been increasingly applied also to a broad range of pathologies in orthopaedics and rehabilitative medicine. Both radial and focused shockwaves are clinically proven effective for a range of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as for wound and tissue healing and bone repair.
With this Shockwave Therapy Book, we want to offer to the physical therapist clinical guidelines when treating patients with the Chattanooga shockwave equipment.
The first part of the book is dedicated to theoretical, technological and physiological principles. The second part is a "cook book" providing parameter guidelines and illustrations for multiple musculoskeletal indications. The proposed protocols are guidelines, based on research evidence and the authors' clinical experience.
